EEX: Launch of Trading in Phelix-Off Peak Futures
The offpeak load profile comprises the period from 0:00 to 8:00 and from 20:00 to 24:00 on Monday to Friday and from 0:00 to 24:00 on Saturdays and Sundays. The new futures enable an improved structuring of the portfolio for the trading participants.
EEX has, thus, rounded off its offer of financial Phelix Futures with regard to the maturities and load profiles. In addition, Week Futures were launched on the EEX Derivatives Market at the end of March. All Phelix Futures products can also be traded and cleared by Eurex participants through their existing infrastructure in the context of the existing cooperation.
